chris christie. the governor surprised many people today when he called the president and i quote outstanding and incredibly supportive. words he probably wouldn't have used at the heart of an election battle last week. governor chris christie joins me from the state emergency command center. governor, thank you for joining me. i watched these extraordinary scenes over new jersey today. really quite unprecedented. i've never seen anything quite like it. have you ever seen anything like this in your lifetime? >> no, i haven't. in fact, piers, today i toured the jersey coastline both by helicopter, and i landed in two spots on the jersey shore. and i can tell you that i have never seen devastation like this in my life. not here in new jersey. you see sights like the seaside heights boardwalk, where the program "the jersey shore" is filmed, the boardwalk is gone. it is gone. amusement rides, a roller coaster, a log flume, in the ocean. it's incredible. homes destroyed. it's an awful thing. >> new jersey people are known for their resilience. they're tough people. you yourself are a t
bedfellows, president obama and governor chris christie now united in crisis. they have been working closely to clean up new jersey after superstorm sandy left parts of the state in ruins, but christie's been far from friendly with the president in the past, acting as one of mitt romney's most outspoken attack dogs, slamming the president's leadership in stump speeches and campaign rallies all year. listen to christie just two weeks ago. >> he never ran anything in his life so the president doesn't know how to lead. we watch what he's been like for the past four years. he's like a man wandering around a dark room, hand up against the wall, clutching for the light switch of leadership, and he just can't find it, and he won't find it in the next 18 days! >> apparently governor christie thinks the governor has found it. cnn contributors errol lewis and eric join us. i want to read a tweet you posted not too long ago. it's so cute that obama is trying to look like he's in charge with the hurricane. someone should ask the libyan consulate for a comment. do you still stand by this, and what do you

boosters, new jersey governor chris christie, being there with president obama saying sort of,"to hell with politics, this is about people's lives." t think we could see a similar endorsement or chris christie says president obama is best on this issue? >> i doubt he would actually say that in so many words. but i think he actually did say something with body language an@ with political theater. it is a very, very important distinction. you saw chris christie snap into pragmatic governor mode, and mode much more similar to the way, for example, mike bloomberg conducts himself as mayor of the city. sure, his ideological views, but when there is a real crunch and a real need for leadership, he is not going to stand on -- he is not going to lean toward political posturing and certainly is not going at that point to pretend that the federal government has nothing to do with the health and welfare of american society. i think chris christie was communicating something significant in how he worked with the president and singled out the president's -- by the way, singled out fema for administ
christie has been superb. he will continue to move assets here. trucks were going to drive across the country to help in thork ci new york city. instead the president sent huge air force planes and brought them here. this is going to take some days, some weeks to straighten out. people have a good sense this guy is in charge. who would have thought that the october surprise would turn out to be chris christie who keynoted the republican convention, looked at what the president was doing, said he was incredible. if you saw it today, they asked are you still in contact with the president? he said, i'm talking with the fema guys all the time, they're doing everything they want. >> i think that's right. i acknowledge that on the show, bob shrum. i want to go to my friend, ed rogers. >> hey. >> that's when obama was on the beat. first he was in the white house in the oval office. then he traveled. then he walked with chris christie. okay. he was doing his job. now he's back on the campaign trail. i point i'm making, ed rogers, is this. the aftermath, you know, sandy is officially over.
in the affected areas, including governor christie, governor cuomo and mayor bloomberg. i want to praise them for the extraordinary work that they have done. you know, sadly we are getting more experience with these kinds of big impact storms along the east coast and the preparation shows. were it not for the outstanding work that they and their teams have already done and will continue to do in the affected regions, we could have seen more deaths and more property damage. so they have done extraordinary work, working around the clock. the coordination between the state, local and federal governments has been outstanding. obviously we're now moving into the recovery phase in a lot of the most severely affected areas. new jersey, new york in particular have been pounded by this storm, connecticut has taken a big hit. because of some of the work that has been done ahead of time, we have been able to get over a thousand fema officials in place, prepositioned. we have been able to get supplies, food, medicine, water, emergency generators to ensure that hospitals and law enforcement offices are ab
that is along the coast that we are watching and seeing. destruction that governor chris christy has now called overwhelming. brian morowski is joining us on the phone from new jersey, and, brian, i understand that you actually road your bike to the boardwalk after the storm just to see what kind of damage was there. can you describe for me what you saw? >> yeah. it was like a war zone. it was unbelievable. i mean, just buildings crushed. the board walk completely gone. very sad. people's belongings everywhere. not fun, man. not fun to see. >> brian,s somebody who is a part of this community, i can't imagine really what the emotions are that you are experiencing. can you talk a little bit about your conversations that you have with your family and your friends, some of the emotions that go through when you look at the day after and then the day after and realize this isn't really going to change any time soon? >> you know, you sit there and you think to yourself, you know, i'm glad i'm around my family, and my family is safe, and there are other people that aren't, you know, and you just -- you
dozens of evacuees. governor chris christie blamed atlantic city's mayor, who says didn't do enough to let people know they needed to leave. >> i hope and pray that there won't be any loss of life because of it. >> reporter: from sleepy beachside communities to the nation's capital and new england, sandy was unrelenting, bringing down everything from mammoth trees to utility poles. a coast guard rescue took place after the "hms bounty" sank. in allenhurst new jersey cbs news cameras captured waves crashing against a beachfront restaurant before the building collapsed. even houses on stilts no match. >> it's pretty bad. it's not over yet. so i don't know how much worse it's going to be. >> reporter: and there wasn't just rain. there was snow. whiteout conditions in some spots. sandy may be slowing down but the twin threat in the east from inundating rains and historic flooding is far from over. and there is more evidence of that in moonachie, new jersey this morning just outside new york city. rescues and evacuations have been under way today after that city
wednesday afternoon with new jersey governor chris christie. the two saw devastated areas from the air on marine one and met with people in the oceanside city, both trying to lift the spirits of residents left to pick up the pieces and pledging to work together. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state. and on the phone conversation with his him, was able to witness it today personally. >> the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> white house correspondent brianna keilar joins us from green bay, wisconsin, where the president will make his first campaign stop since the storm. brianna, will the president -- of course the president will continue to monitor from wisconsin, right? >> reporter: of course, he will, carol. we're hearing from white house officials that before he leaves this morning, heading back on the campaign trail, he will be receiving a briefing from the head of fema, craig fugat
